My dream has always been being a fashion designer. I worked so hard to get good grades to make it to a good art school so I can advance in my fashion design career. I've finally was able to get accepted into SAIC the second best art school in the United States. My family didn't come up rich and of course getting into a big college comes with a big tuition and the tuition I have to pay for this art school is such a burden on my family and I would really love to get this scholarship so I can be the one in my family break our generational curses.

I am applying for this Scholarship to help reduce the finical hurdle of attending college. I am prepared to do the work and mow I seek the opportunity to excel at academics thereby become a contributing member of society. Thank you for your consideration of my application.

I believe I should be awarded this scholarship as I am a hardworking senior with a GPA of 3.8 and a 1220 on the SAT. My goal is to be accepted into Binghamton university for a degree in Neuroscience. I am very involved in my community with over 100 hours of community service at my local church. I also have working experience as I have been working at Burger King for the past 4 months and have learned so much about my job and its application. This will financially help me pay for college and focus more on my work and academics more.

I am a senior in high school and looking back, I feel as though I have worked hard to maintain a 4.5 GPA while balancing my athletic responsibilities and social life. I am proud that I scored a 32 on my ACT, and I plan on continuing to strive for solid grades as I see out the rest of my senior year, and begin my studies in college. I've captained my high school soccer team as both a junior and a senior, and I use my leadership qualities to volunteer at various organizations with teammates, my favorite being TOPSoccer, where we help coach and make soccer an enjoyable experience for children with disabilities. A scholarship of this magnitude would be extremely beneficial to help me and my family pay for college, and I'm glad at least someone will benefit from it.

Hi I’m Erin and I have an unweighted GPA of 3.863. My weighted GPA is 4.133. I’ve been in my school’s backpack tutoring volunteer program for 4 years. The past two years I have been a leader of the program. I have been a writing coach for 3 years, and this year I am on the blog team for our Writing Center website. I will have taken a total of 8 AP classes when I finish my senior year of high school. I have also been involved in Human Rights club and Global Cultures club, and this year I joined National Art Honors Society. I really like making art and NAHS is a great community that creates art with a humanistic purpose. I have taken French since I was in 7th grade and last year I was in International Studies studying Norway. I was also on the cross country team for one year and the sailing team last year.

Even though I am not sure where I will attend college, I am still concerned about how to pay for it. I would like to study Environmental Science and research new methods of renewable energy, but I know I will not make enough to pay off student loans. I have worked hard for my grades, and I currently have a 31 on the ACT, which I hope I can improve. I think I should be considered for this scholarship so it will be possible for me to work my way through college and graduate debt free.

I am a senior in high school and I have worked very hard to earn a GPA of 4.145 and I received a 25 on the ACT. I am leader in my community by organizing community clean up opportunities. I also work with the American Legion with the Adopt A Mile Program to clean the surrounding area. I hope you will consider me for the scholarship so that I can earn my own way through college and not be a financial burden on my family.

Being the first generation Ghanaian girl in my family, I really want to attend college in order to not only learn the skills necessary for me to fulfill my dreams--which is to go to Medical school and become an Oncologist--but to set an example for my sister to follow. For me, I know that going to college will be a big challenge if I don't secure any scholarships, this is why I want to apply to this scholarship because if given this scholarship,my family and I won't have to worry about paying for college or getting loans.

I am a freshman at Adams State University. I attended this school because my dream was to play college soccer and I got an offer to play there. I love the school and I get to live my dream but unfortunately the school is very expensive. Women's soccer does not get many scholarships so I must find other scholarships if I want to continue attending next year.

I'm really excited about the possibility of being a recipient for this scholarship because it will mean that I can finally sign up for flight school. Enrolled in college has created a insatiable thirst for becoming a pilot, but with this scholarship, I will be able to quench that thirst and do college and flight school at the same time. So thank you, thank you THANK YOU!

I plan on attending Alverno college to obtain my BSN. I want to have an excellent career and job, not only to have a good future, but to also give back to all those who've helped me along my journey and many more. I plan on using the money to help pay for my college expenses. I know my parents can only help me so much. My parents grew up in Mexico and they both came from very poor families. Our family is humble. Everything we have came with a sacrifice. They have taught me to be diligent and a hard-worker. I do not take anything for granted. And I look up to my parents a lot, their impact is profound, I seek their guidance and I hope to make them proud. I want to use this money to advance my medical education. With the education I receive, I will go on to help many people and make a difference in their lives.

This scholarship would allow me to purse my career in education. Teaching is one of those things that nearly everybody thinks he or she can do better than the experts. Everybody has taught something to somebody at one time or another, after all. We begin our amateur teaching careers as children by imposing our superior knowledge on our younger siblings or playmates. As students, we pass judgement among our peers on this or that teacher's capabilities. As adults, those of us who do not teach professionally stand ever ready to criticize those who do. To where I want to make a difference.

Anna Licia M  on 12/9/2018 1:52:20 PM

This scholarship will help me to pursue my dream in the medical field. My desire is to become a Pediatrician. Since this will be challenging for my parents, I will start with Pre-Med/Nursing. I usually work at a Day Care during the vacation. I want to serve this country with excellence. Presently, my GPA is 3.93, and I will be writing the SAT very soon.

carmen g  on 10/22/2018 9:56:40 PM

This scholarship would allow me to pursue my career in the medical field. I goal to become a doctor started from seeing my grandparents suffer from poor doctors. Growing up I have always wanted to be able to help others, and in high school I found that love from volunteering at the hospital. At the hospital I see so many people that one day I could possibly help and it drives me. My family could never afford for me to go to school so I knew that I had to fight for everything I do. This scholarship could give me an opportunity to make my family proud. Most of my cousins didn’t go to college. Without money for school I won’t be able to go after my dream. Being a doctor would mean the world to me. We used to leave it Memphis until recently last year. This scholarship would allow my parents to be debt free and stress free. My brother now can not afford to go to back to college to pursue his career in dentistry. This scholarship would allow me continue my dream in being a pediatric cardiologist.
